Thousands of programmes have been given out to schools as the organisers remind families and friends that the Burnham Donkey Derby and Spring Fair is on its way.

It is the village's biggest community and charity event, organised by the Burnham Beeches Rotary Club.

It all happens on Saturday, May 25 from noon - the perfect way to start the Bank Holiday weekend.

Admission is free and in addition to traditional donkey rides, donkey races and Traylen's Funfair there will be entertainment from the Azure Theatre School and Pop Goes the Choir in the arena or a chance to try your luck at the Tote.

There will be stalls run by youth groups, charities, crafts, local businesses and community groups and a variety of food and drink.

The programme includes prize competitions for children.

Proceeds are distributed by Rotary to good causes during the year including Thames Hospice, Alexander Devine Children's Hospice, Riding for the Disabled, Homestart, Padstones and the Thames Valley Adventure Playground.
